What are you reading?

Recommended Posts

Would anyone object if I renamed this thread? @topezia hasn't been around for over six months so I can't ask the original poster.

Ideas for thread name (please add yours):

"What are you reading?" (seems a more appropriate title for the current content)

"Book Reviews"

Speak now ......,

Don't wait, get it as an ebook! Pay less & save the trees :D

I am getting a Kindle for my birthday...

Regarding renaming this thread, I vote for "What are you reading?"

Oh, yay. Thank god for ninjas.

I have just started reading A Clash of Kings by George R. R. Martin. Can't say much about it so far but the first book of the series (A Game of Thrones) was really good.

I really enjoyed that book. I also enjoyed Animal Farm. Have you read that one?

Yeah, I read that one and wrote crappy essays on it in high school :)

I like 1984 quite a bit more, and it seems more relevant, but of course it's been years since I read the other and my memory of it is hazy.

I used to be an avid bookworm but since I have got the laptop that has stopped. However at the moment I am reading `Sketchup 8 For Dummies' by Aiden Chopra. His videos really helped me learn the program so I bought the book . Shame there are no similar PDN books really.

Actually reading Les Miserables by Victor Hugo (Kindle). Hey - it was free!

I can't tell you yet if I like it. I'm only 6% into it.

I'm finding the language interesting but everything happens so s-l-o-w-l-y.

The best book by far is:

Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand

I suggest you all read it. Don't be afraid by the fact that it is over 1,000 pages. It goes quickly.

The day after I read your post, I got assigned Atlas Shrugged as one of my books for Senior thesis. So I have to read this over the summer. Thanks a lot. :roll::|

Just finished reading A Canticle for Leibowitz. It was pretty good, I can definitely see why it's a sci-fi classic.

I really struggled with that title. It was a chore to read and felt so disjointed. Took at least two attempts to get through it.

Enjoying: Consider Phlebas - Iain M Banks. Has the feel of a first novel (perhaps not as polished as his later novels).
